Insideout recently constructed a team challenge course for Thames Young Mariners. The course encourages young people to work as part of a team and helps them to develop important life skills. The course has many challenges that help participants learn from their experiences and gradually improve their performance. This learning cycle - do-review-apply - is a form of action research where they are both the Guinea pig and the researcher responsible for their own learning.
Just visited Haggerston Castle for the first time since our new course was installed - wow, wow and wow again!

We've recently worked with a ropes course at the Bristol Zoo called "Zooropia!". We upgraded the safety system to a continuous Saferoller system enabling clients to be clipped in from the moment they leave the ground until they return to the ground at the end of the course.
This unique course allows you to swing next to the Zoo's most popular inhabitants such as the gibbons, gorillas and lemurs. It was an un-nerving experience being keenly watched by the gorillas as we constructed the course!
After the conversion, the client reported that operartion of the course was smoother, leading to greater turnover.
